Restoring Saved Data
I traded my ps3 with another kid's ps3 and I kept my hdd. Before trading, I used FTP to transfer all files from hdd0 to my pc. After I got the new ps3 and popped my hard drive in, it told me I needed to format (which I knew and thus backed it up to my pc). I formatted it and then copied all the files back from my pc to the hard drive. However, idk where user info is stored but that didnt get transfered back, and even though the save files transfered to the hdd home/0000001/savedata (or wherever that savedata folder is, im not near my ps3 so I cant confirm the exact location) they dont show up under my saved games. I think that it is because I had to create a new user on my ps3 and the user that it was saved under isnt there anymore. Is there any way I can restore all the save files without putting them on a flash drive and copying one by one (there are a few thousand individual save files)?
I'd like to know that as well.
Have you rebuilt your database from the recovery menu?
Nope, I guess I should do that? I'll try that and report back.
